Event description

Description

Join us as we honor the PAIR Project's dedicated volunteers and resilient clients!

These are difficult times for immigrants across our nation. PAIR is working hard to protect immigrant rights here in Massachusetts, by conducting community “Know Your Rights” presentations, volunteering at Boston Logan Airport to assist new arrivals, helping with federal litigation, providing legal orientation for immigrants in detention, and taking on even more asylum cases. Our annual PAIR Gala is an important night where we honor our clients and the tremendous work of our volunteers, and gather with allies to voice our commitment to support immigrant communities across the Commonwealth.

Plus, it’s a night of fun! You won't want to miss out on this year's line-up of fabulous auction items! You could leave with Hamilton tickets, an exclusive lunch with Junot Diaz, Red Sox home-game tickets, a wine and cheese tasting at Formaggio in the South End, concert tickets to Coldplay at Gillette Stadium, a chef's tasting with Meghann Ward of Tapestry or tickets to James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt at Fenway.

All funds raised at the PAIR Gala and through the live auction will support PAIR's core programs and provide lifesaving services to immigrants in Massachusetts.
